for all practical reasons, is this band finished?

they did a tour with roth, then went away, then finaly came back with a new album of mostly old songs and while it surprised many at how consistent it was, it was kinda a nostaglic album. They toured again on and off stop and go and never really hit their stride. I know eddie has some health issues also.

now its been well over 2 years and pretty much silent. rumours of a live dvd never showed. Eddie and van halen has put out exactly one full album since 1998 (again songs were all mostly written over 30 years ago so no new ideas)...

What a waste the past 15 years have been for van halen. they were still young to put out many albums , now age is catching up with them. Its clear while they may get along with roth just enough, there is NO chemistry there.

I do not want them to retire but for all signs they are pretty much retired. I know it will never happen but I wouldlove for them to get back with sammy and michael if for NO other reason to do one last true farewell tour of that lineup...

just sad to see what they have become...
